No the aircraft didnt fully stall- one wing stalled -its more than likely that the upgoing wing was unstalled and above the critical angle of attack.

You need to look at a CL curve graph-lift is still produced below the critical angle of attack
Isn't it more likely that one wing was in a slightly deeper stall than the other? Some lift is still produced above the critical AoA.

Question Positive landing

Lots of great points raised, and view points I'd not considered, but there is one that really doesn't sit well with me.

"a greaser is appreciated by ...the person who has to pay for new tires"

Not so. Grease it gently enough and the tyre doesn't spin up quickly and you will induce more rubber degradation and wear as the wheel slowly spins up. A positive touchdown forces the wheel to spin up more instantly and will cause less rubber wear.

Honestly, mine aren't done in a repeatable enough manner to make it applicable to my flying, , but thought I'd bring it up.

Congrats on your first solo!

Tell us all about how you overcame your landing problem. When did it suddenly "click" for you?

You know what. It clicked when I started to look down the runway correctly, Started to get my speeds correct and getting into the flare a little later. I did go into a situation of putting my nose wheel down to early but I quickly overcame that and now I have that crucial in-between that gets me down without even a tire squeal Thanks a mill for the Congrats. Cant wait to get back up again
